Stories and ideas come from Lions around Wisconsin, including the Wisconsin Lion Editorial Board, Council of Governors and a variety of committees. Each issue includes information on a wide variety of subjects from a number of contributors including:

News & Feature Stories – from Wisconsin Lions Foundation (WLF), Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin, Current International Director (or immediate PID), Lioness, Pin Traders, clubs/members, state committees & others

District Pages – monthly news from each district including a message from the DG, club events and calendars.

Classified Section – sections for WLF & LEBW donors, club anniversaries, club events, MD27 contacts, upcoming dates, conventions & trainings, Melvin Jones & Birch Sturm Fellows
